1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Yuck - this must have been a bad bottle. Golden pour with a gushing head. Aroma is cheap and grainy. Taste was a nasty, skunky, worse than pale lager taste. Yuck.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Light aroma of sweet fruit and noble hop. Light pale gold color with a fine white head. It looks like a pale lager. Medium bodied; near creamy carbonation. It is pilsener hop bitter, and there is light fruity flavor. It seems well balanced, but it’s very different. The finish is not quite dry, and it has a very nice amount of bitter. Got a hit of heat at the end. It may not be exciting, but it is very interesting and drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 mL bottle. Hazy yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma yeasty with a hint of banana and perhaps citrus. Bright and lively palate. Taste is a little too weak and watery, but there are some notes of fruit and a little spice with a clean finish. Nothing particularly exciting about this one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A very uninspired average golden ale. More like a pilsner, but the usual crisp bitterness that comes with a pilsner was unpleasant. It was also quite carbonated. A little bready maltiness, but that was it. Unenjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber. Very pale golden beer with a white head. Arom ais of fresh bready malt, a bit of honey and even a touch of wheaty character. Hop aroma is very low. Flavour is a bit sweet but does show nice fresh breadiness. It’s not going to win any awards but it’s a nice lawnmower type of brew.
